Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Mahama has condemned the recent insurgency under the auspices of the Western Togoland group seeking to declare the eastern parts of Ghana as an independent state.
The Former President who was speaking during his campaign in the Bono Region on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 said Ghana is a sovereign state therefore no one has the right to divide it.
“Just a few days ago some unknown persons came to block roads claiming that Volta region is theirs so they want their independence. Ghana’s land belongs to Ghana, Ghana is a sovereign republic and nobody can claim a part of Ghana. When Rawlings built Ghana, we were all part.
“All of us come together to make Ghana so we cannot sit aloof and watch some people take Ghana. If it’s so, then everyone will trace their history and come for a part of their share which will not be a good thing. What brings us together is the fact that we are all Ghanaians,” Mahama declared.
The Western Togoland secessionist group earlier today attacked the STC bus terminal in Ho. The group is reported to have beaten the drivers of STC and burnt one car in the process last night.
The incident according to our sources occurred during the wee hours of Tuesday.
The members of the group reportedly fired gunshots before proceeding to beat up some drivers.
There is currently heavy security presence at the scene.
Currently, operations have been halted at the bus terminal while joint police and military team has taken over the yard.
According to the regional manager of the facility, Richard Ahiafor, operations would only resume as at when a directive comes from the head office in Accra.
As to whether the office of the facility has been looted, that is yet to be confirmed.
